Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, (http://www.chathamhouse.org/) is an independent policy institute based in London. Its mission is to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.
- Engages governments, the private sector, civil society and its members in open debates and confidential discussions about significant developments in international affairs
- Produces independent and rigorous analysis of critical global, regional and country-specific challenges and opportunities
- Develops new ideas on how to best confront critical international challenges and take advantage of opportunities in the near-to long-term
Chatham House established the Centre on Global Health Security in 2009 in recognition of the fact that matters of individual and collective health security are increasingly interlinked with other aspects of international affairs. It seeks to inform policy by offering evidence-based, politically feasible solutions and related policy options that help decision-makers around the world take actions that improve global health security. It does so by stimulating discourse between the international affairs and public health communities, and by contributing to knowledge on global health challenges and how they manifest themselves as problems of international affairs and global politics.
